Reagan Coin

Ronald Reagan tops the Littleton Coin Company’s recent survey of who or what should be depicted on U.S. coins. (Click here, and scroll down to the “News and Events” area.) Littleton vice president Jeff Marsh explained the methodology in an email: “Our poll was posted on our website and asked for people to tell us who they’d like to see on a coin. People could only vote once. The people who visited our site may be inclined, obviously, to be coin collectors and enthusiasts. Our survey was not formal, in that we didn’t have an independent polling group conduct a formal survey of randomly selected participants.” Last year, I proposed putting Reagan on the dime.
